NSF expands and Renews UW MRSEC

Jim Beal
With $18 million over six years, the National Science Foundation is expanding the mission of one of the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s most prolific and prestigious interdisciplinary research centers. The Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) on Nanostructured Interfaces includes more than 40 faculty and 50 students from across the UW-Madison campus. It now will serve as a network of regional, national and international collaborations that will tackle several grand challenges of materials research and engineering.
